Information for parents/carers

If you are looking after a child with a physical or learning disability, or life limiting condition, you may not think of yourself as a carer. However, being the parent of a child with disabilities can cause you to experience additional pressures and problems.

All parents and carers of disabled children, young people and disabled adults have a right to ask for an assessment of their own needs. This will usually be carried out by a worker from a social care team such as 0-25 Together.

You can contact Hertfordshire’s 0-25 Together service or speak to your social care worker if you have one already.
